Three-time RITA nominee Joanne Rock has never met a romance
sub-genre she didn’t like. The author of over seventy
books currently writes sexy contemporary stories for
Harlequin Desire and small town romance for Harlequin
Superromance. An optimist by nature and perpetual seeker of
silver linings, Joanne finds romance fits her life outlook
perfectly—love is worth fighting for. A frequent
speaker at regional and national writing conferences she
enjoys giving back to the writing community that nurtured
and inspired her early career. She has a Masters degree in
Literature from the University of Louisville but credits her
fiction writing skills to her intensive study with fellow
author and friend Catherine Mann. When she’s not
writing, Joanne enjoys travel, especially to see her
favorite sports teams play with her former sports editor
husband and three athletic-minded sons.
Joanne Rock is giving away Book 1 in the McNeill Magnate series, THE MAGNATE'S MAIL-ORDER BRIDE (print or digital, reader's choice). Read it now before the next three books in the series release! Coming soon—look for LITTLE SECRETS: HIS PREGNANT SECRETARY, when Jager McNeill takes center stage.

I’d forgotten how much this project made me smile, but… Read More
